Processor Support Package
CoWare announces its Model Library support for the MIPS32® 34K core family new processor cores launched from MIPS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIPS). Integration of the processor model into CoWare's ConvergenSC SystemC-based environment for platform-driven ESL design enables users and prospective users of the MIPS32 34 k cores to assess and optimize their capabilities on system performance, at an early stage of design. Designers can combine the MIPS32 34 k model with other elements of the CoWare Model Library, such as AMBA or OCP-IP-compliant on-chip interconnects, and peripheral models, to create a SystemC transaction-level model of the complete platform. Designers can also run real software on the platform model and simulate at speeds fast enough to analyze overall system performance and assess the impact of the 34 k cores' innovative capabilities such as Multi-threading (MT) and DSP functions.
